Bishi Explores The Immigrant Experience In Her New Single "Language Is An Ocean"
The breath-taking new single from Bishi's third album "Let My Country Awake", "Language Is An Ocean" doesn't hesitate to tackle meaty issues, while twining them into beautiful melodies. “Young people of colour our stories can and should be told” she sings as delicate choral sounds and sampled lines morph into an electronic groove complete with Bishi’s trademark sitar.
Inspired by the immigrant experience, Bishi explores 'code switching', the phenomenon by which immigrants moderate or alter their language to fit in with the dominant culture. Bishi's album is out next month and I can't wait.
